Community Outreach and Engagement Toolkit

Outreach and engagement with any community requires open-mindedness, dedication to short- and long-term goals, and a sincere commitment to seek and value inclusivity and diversity. Organizations that find themselves eager to establish positive relationships with Latinxs can use this toolkit as a resource to get started or to strengthen their efforts. The goal of this toolkit is to support organizations on a path to understanding how to best engage with the Latinx community.

The slides that follow are structured by major actions organizations must take. Each action slide is supplemented with a brief explanation of what it means or entails, questions to consider and discuss as an organization, and related resources and materials. Positive community outreach and engagement cannot be achieved overnight; it is a process that this toolkit will assist organizations in initiating.
